How to Use a Tile Saw : How to Finish a Three Sided Cut with a Tile Saw


Hi, this is Brian Carter on behalf of Expertvillage.com.
I have 10 years of ceramic tile installation experience. Today I am going to show you how
to make a three-sided cut using the grinder fit with the ceramic tile dry blade. Okay
so we are going to do the same type of cut here, but we are going to do the first two
lines using the wet saw just as we did last time. This is a common cut for an outlet or
some kind of box, alright. On the last one we did the parallel cut, you remember and
then we cut it from side-to-side. This one we are going to actually use the blade to
cut the actual line, so cut there. And so here we go with the dry blade. This blade
runs a lot hotter, so we can take our time we can see the sparks coming off there. As
we go down the tile gets hotter so be careful and it will pop off just like that. Okay perfect.
Now what we are going to do is we are going to take it, we are going to turn it over and
we are going to clean it up from the back side because we can cut a little bit into
the tile on the back side but not have it effect the surface, and if that is an exposed
area, we can fill any of that underside with grout so it is not a problem. We will just
keep trimming that up, be really careful, and you got a nice cut there.

    Angle grinders are excellent tools… So versatile and handy. If you don't have one you should buy one now. Kicks up a lot of dust, depending on the tile…
